Cleveland Point Lighthouse Restaurant is a waterfront wedding venue with stunning views overlooking Moreton Bay and its surrounding islands. We cater up to 250 people in six varying spaces of our modern restaurant, including open-air venues.

Wrapped in ocean views of Moreton Bay & the beautiful parklands of Cleveland Point, the Lighthouse offers multiple dining experiences with a seafood restaurant, cafe & fish ‘n’ chips takeaway.

While the waterside location is quite the attraction, we don’t claim our title as a ‘beacon in waterfront dining’ based on ocean views alone.

Local seafood, personal service & relaxed ambience are all part of the Lighthouse experience. We have aimed to create a place where guests can indulge in the best of the distinct Queensland lifestyle housed in a nautically inspired interior.

In the romantic tradition of our namesake, a lighthouse beacon becomes our inspiration as we aim to light up the lives of everyone who walks through our front door.

We chose the Lighthouse due to us having a small ceremony for about 20 guests due to covid restrictions. The event manager was excellent and so informative. We hired out the bar area and the ceremony and lunch were in the same area. The views were spectacular. The food and service very good.

Perfect! The venue, food, service, planning - everything was great! All the guests had an amazing time - best party they had been too in a long time. I would 100% recommend The Lighthouse for your wedding.

All I can say is WOW! I can't speak highly enough of Melissa and Jeremiah the head chef, everything just went perfect!! It's everything you would've expected to happen and more! Nothing was too much for Melissa, and my wife is specific about what she wants and Melissa would be able to do it all! The food was amazingly presented, what you saw was what you tasted, it was so full of flavour! We can't speak highly enough of the Lighthouse, we go there so often, we eat there and spend so much time there, I also proposed there, and we'll just always keep going back! If there's a word better than fabulous, it would be that, words can't describe how much the Lighthouse Restaurant means to us! The way Melissa looked after us, and the restaurant itself, there isn't a better place to get married.

Mel was extremely helpful in the lead up to our special day and always so lovely and positive. Decorators (beautiful illusions) also did an amazing job and it looked stunning on the night. We did an engagement party and surprise wedding in one and there was a bit of a hiccup with staff mentioning wedding when guests were arriving. As soon as we realised we let them know and they had a little staff meeting and it was sorted out. Apart from that, the rest of the night was perfect. Beautiful location and would definitely recommend having any kind of special event here! Especially if you want something by the water!

We couldn't have been happier with our choice of the lighthouse venue to host our wedding. The organisation of Melissa the event coordinator was impeccable. On the actual day everything ran smoothly and not only us but our other guests were very happy with the meals, bar and all staff involved.

Everything was set up beautifully! It looked exactly how we wanted it! We were really happy with the quality of the food and that everything ran to our plans. The only thing was that the food came out a little bit late but Mel the events manager was so great in doing her best to coordinate everything. All our guests were really happy with everything.

Our wedding coordinator was fantastic, she really went above and beyond what we were even expecting. We had the same coordinator the whole way through which made planning our reception so easy.
